Slots are dynamic placeholders that either wait for content (passive slots) or call out to it via a scenario (active slots). Scenarios use the ACC to deliver content to a slot and specify how to display that content. They also work in conjunction with renderers to present content on a page. In the context of offer management, it is not recommended to feed a slot using more than one scenario, because this can lead to unpredictable results.
